Near Petersburg, AK

I have been north in Alaska over the last few weeks, not in a COVID ward. Thank you to the readers who wrote to check on my health! I was in Southeast Alaska on a small boat, the Northern Song, with my husband, our siblings and their spouses: all nine of us, plus Captain Dennis Rogers and his crew of two. That was it; no giant cruise ship! We are all vaccinated and COVID-negative so we were able to enjoy a mask-free week watching whales bubble-netting, sea lions yelling, and bears fishing.

I don’t know which is funnier: the sight or the sound of these goofballs.
One of many glaciers we were able to see from a float plane near Petersburg.

Have A Great Week!
